Under the Sun

Whilst most of the UK, well the south-east, has been baking under the sun for the past week, here in the far south-west where we are practically surrounded by water, things haven’t been quite the same. For two days last week it was mizzle all day, grey and wet. Then on Friday the sun appeared. For a while. By mid afternoon a sea fret had come over and we were back in the mist.

On Saturday the same thing happened, but then at 7 p.m. I noticed that in the east the sky was blue so we made a mad dash up the hill to look for the sun.

Thick dark fog covered the land from coast to coast in the north, and the clouds of mist moved rapidly over the sky in the west.

It was a strange time as the sun disappeared then reappeared.

But at least the wind was blowing the fog away quite rapidly and for short blasts we were actually under the sun.

    Beautiful photos. Well done.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks John! We have really had to chase the sun this week!

  2. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Beautiful images. The fog adds to the beauty

    1. Heyjude says:

      The fog drives me mad! Just when I think it is OK to hang the washing out in it comes again! It’s always the same when the rest of the country has a heatwave!

  3. Graham says:

    Sounds like a grand English summer, different weather every five minutes. Nice photos though and the light is lovely.

    1. Heyjude says:

      You are not wrong!

  4. Leya says:

    Beautiful and harmonious, Jude. Lovely country you live in. Love the fog and the long views.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I must confess that after more than a week of fog I am rather tired of it!

      1. Leya says:

        Yes…and right now I think you have sent a gust of it up here too. But it lifts before noon!

        1. Heyjude says:

          Clear this morning, so nice to see a blue sky.

  5. Jude, these are beautiful images. I especially love the colours in your second photo.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Ah, yes. When the sun did appear the light was fabulous.

  6. What magnificent landscapes!! Under any sky.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Always makes me happy when I climb up here. The fields are always different depending on the time of year.

  7. Very dramatic weather where you live! It makes for some very atmospheric photos.

    The one with the rock and the heather in the foreground (if it is heather) is my favourite. The word ‘glorious’ was made for scenes like that.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I love trying to get interesting shots of the heather and the rocks. Glad that one appealed to you.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Ah, well, it’s been a bit too atmospheric for the last couple of weeks. Today was better though, actually blue skies even with clouds, but no darn fog!
